    Thanks for the report, great to hear.
    I have observed milstar 1 and 6 both flare up, for a few years, so I am not suprised milstar 5 is flaring also.
    Keep an eye on Galaxy 11 ( 26038 ) as the following was sent to me.

    I want to share with you that Galaxy 11 was flaring for observers at
    European Russia region in july every night around 01:45am local
    time (UTC+4). It reached 3.5 mag at flare max. And hour later was
    second dimmer flare at about 7m mag.
    I captured one flare on camera 
    Nice to see, others seeing the flare from it, like I use to, until they moved it to, a new orbital slot.
